DID YOU KNOW ?

Javier Zanetti was born in Buenos Aires and grew up in the harbour area in the Dock Sud district. He combined scholastic and working commitments, helping his bricklayer father with masonry alongside delivering milk, and working in his cousin's grocery shop without neglecting his passion for football.

He began playing football on a pitch in the suburbs of the city, and personally took care of pitch maintenance.

Zanetti was nicknamed Il Trattore (The Tractor) after moving to Italy because of his strength, resilience, stamina and his ability to run past opposing defenders when joining the attack from his right back position.

Zanetti is notable for his charitable work, running a foundation to benefit disadvantaged children in Argentina.
